Hunter Green Wedding HELP!
Hello ladies!

I am in need of some advice. I am going with hunter green for bridesmaids dresses and I was thinking about having the groom and groomsmen wear grey suits. Do you think this would look good together?

Also if anyone has any pictures from their hunter green wedding, I would LOVE to see them!

Thanks for all of the help!

Hi Meg ~ Welcome to WW

I think a lighter gray would look better than a charcoal gray.
What are you thinking for flowers? Lighter green or are you adding an accent color.

Can't wait to hear more about your wedding.

So I was thinking of using fall color for flowers and decoration like red, orange, eggplant purple but I feel like those colors really won't blend well with the hunter green and grey. So my alternative was using a bright purple.

What are your thoughts?

Do you have your venue booked yet?

What is the mood or atmosphere of the location?
or the mood you want to go for.... fun, romantic, classic, modern, traditional, quirky....?

and does your venue have any colors that stick out? Colors of the chairs, carpet, curtains?

I am using hunter green as well, but I went with chocolate brown tuxedos for the guys..I am also doing fall flowers, and I felt the grey would clash.

The reception hall has wood paneling. I want a fun atmosphere and I'm trying to go with a country theme with mason jars to help decorate with... I also plan on using the white Christmas lights in sheer fabric to help decorate too. Like draping the fabric and lights around the room. Here is the closest picture I could find.

i definitely think that brown would look much better than gray...especially because you are having it in fall and the eggplant and other colors you mentioned would work very well with hunter green and brown.
Overstock.com has a bunch of nice suits that are pretty inexpensive as far as suits go...

What about grey suits, hunter green dresses and purple flowers and silver stuff to decorate with?

I think purple is kinda more romantic than fun.... what do you feel when you see this?
I was trying to pull wild flower looking to go with the mason jars...

and I'm not even sure I'm feeling the green with the Hunter green....

let me come back with orange and stuff...

Yeah, these both are amazing! Yeah Hayley, the grey with the hunter green might not be perfect. It seems so hard to find pictures online of a grey suit with hunter green.

I don't think brown suits would be bad but I just can't picture it, haha... Maybe I will have to go with black suits, this way if the guys want to buy a suit for the same price as renting a tux then they get to keep the suit.

I really appreciate all of the help. I'm at a lost, haha!

The Future Mrs. J - is there a way I can see that picture a little bit bigger? I can see parts of it but not all of the details. Thank you!

I changed my mind... I like the darker charcoal better than light charcoal.

Orange and purple give it a nice pop.... and a little red in there too...

* think the brown might be the best????
